    I'm so excited to bring our mala making workshops to Singapore!

    This workshop is for anyone interested in learning how to make a mala necklace. Great for individuals or corporate groups. You can also request one-on-one sessions or special group dates/arrangements. Contact us here, wabisabiandme@gmail.com, or Whatsapp 91053850

    What is a mala?

    It is a beaded necklace consisting of a tassel, a 'guru' bead, and a fixed number of round beads that is used in meditation practice or worn as an accessory. 

    Personalize your mala & imbue it with your own positive intentions.

    Yoga and wellness accessories are hot right now! Mala necklaces make the perfect weekend & vacation accessory. They're fun, they're colorful, and they're addictive!

    Learn the secrets of mala making, pearl knotting, and how to finish your work with a luxurious and professional touch at our upcoming workshops around Singapore.

    Immerse yourself in making and balance your energy with this meditative exercise of beading and knotting.

     

    Our colorful malas can be worn as an accessory or they can serve a more spiritual purpose in helping your meditation practice. Learn how to handcraft a mala necklace. Each mala is completely unique and you will be activating it with your own positive intentions while crafting it. 

    A traditional mala typically has 108 beads. You will have the option to either make a 108 bead mala or a 54 bead mala. You most likely won't finish the 108 bead mala in class due to time constraints but I will show you how to finish the necklace in class so you can easily work on it at home. If you choose to make the 54 bead mala, you will most likely finish it during the workshop.
